Wanna get discovered? Apparently your new best chance is to find a TV-sponsored contest. Marvel’s doing one for Blade (link no longer available). They want a four-page comic drawn based on a promotional video clip. (So much for writers. Not only are they not invited to enter, it’s sort of assumed that they’re not even necessary if you have a visual source.)
Meanwhile, over in San Diego, Platinum Studios is teaming up with an NBC station to do an American Idol-like talent search. Beware of this one, though — there’s no mention of who owns what, so it’s likely someone will want to take a piece, perhaps a large one, of your concept. Not to mention that Platinum is well-known for claiming to control a lot of comic book characters and properties but never actually publishing anything.
As always, the best way to get your comic published is to do it yourself.
